Good but no growth opportunities

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The company treats you well and you need to have thick skin to deal with frustration and stressful calls. There’s no growth opportunities so if you look to advance in the company, I recommend you look elsewhere because you cant get to any senior level management but only advance in customer service

Hello, We read your comment with great interest. We are grateful that you shared your input with us. Your review allows us to inform our employees and future employees how to grow in our company. We are aware that it isn't always possible to grow in a function. DHL is very keen to provide sufficient other chances. Think of moving sidewards instead of moving up directly. Exploring other divisions and learning to know the company from within. Please feel free to visit our career page https://careers.dhl.com/It is also possible to get even more experienced and develop by following the learning opportunities that are given. Our mytalentworld.net brings you to an ocean of knowledge offers.In case you don't have access, please contact your Human Resources. Perhaps the growth in function is not happening at this very moment, but there is always a chance to prepare for the future. The world is open for exploration. Good luck!Your DHL Team

Not a good place to work at

Work environment was very strange, would barely get any help from senior agents. I would not recommend anyone to work there as a customer service advisor.

Stressful

Very stressful environment to work in. Not enough training and care more about metrics than their own customers. Management needs to do more to address the bigger problems rather than being on us about sales.

Room to grow in the company but very difficult to receive assistance as a new employee

They over hire people to work in the company and only provide 1 or 2 trainers which leaves you little to no room for assistance. If you're a customer service rep they train you for 2 days and expect you to Start assisting angry customers with little to no knowledge. There is a lot of theory to the training which you don't remember in 2 days to provide assistance to customers who are very stressed regarding their packages etc

Pros

Room for growth

Hello,Thank you so much for your rating and for taking the time to provide honest feedback about your experience as a customer service representative.Our priority is your satisfaction, as well as the satisfaction of our customers.We regret that you were dissatisfied with your time with us and that the work was stressful.The fact that you felt the training was inadequate is cause for concern, and we will investigate.

Hello,Thank you for taking the time to rate us. After all, the points you specifically criticize can only be properly evaluated on site and any problems that arise should be solved in a constructive cooperation in close communication with HR departments and perhaps also with your supervisor. We are fully aware how difficult it can be - especially when the pressure of work is high, conflicts arise or unpleasant decisions have to be made. This requires a high degree of openness and willingness to approach each other, but only with the joint effort of all stakeholders this can be solved. Taking this approach we will become better as a company.Good luck for your future!Your Employer Branding Team

stressful

stressful and underpaid, I wouldn't want to work there again, dont even bother. Management sucks and all in all its favoritism. Although if managed better it would be an ok place to work

GO GO GO, get'r done!

Worked there 13 years, good co-workers but they go through supervisors like they do toilet paper. Always putting pressure on couriers to do more than they "should" handle, sometimes ignoring safety measures. Golf games were fun, lunches were appreciated, but mandatory unpaid training over entire weekends is not cool.

I'm looking for job that is more challenging. My goals are working hard to deliver exceptional results.

A typical day at work mainly involved sending and receiving parcels and phoning clients to come and collect parcels. I learnt to be patient with customers. The hardest part of the job was facing an angry client due to a delayed parcel. The best part of the job was attending workshops.

Adavancement

Although enjoyed time at DHL, there was no room for advancement in department. Lots of people take advantage of the sick time due to fact the leave team leaders unable to either develop or get rid of said types offenders
